She climbed in to bed and sighed. Today had not been the best day and she was worried about Nelson.

She jumped as the phone ringing interrupted her thoughts and she immediately thought it was about something bad...she just hoped she was wrong.

She answered the phone, trying to stifle a yawn at the same time. It had been a long day.

"Hello," said a voice at the other end. "This is the hospital. I have some news for you."

"Oh. What is it? Is something wrong?"

"It seems your wife has died."

"You what!?" Lisa yelled.

"I know it must be a shock…" the receptionist, Mrs Wiggum, told her in a calming voice.

"I don't have a wife," Lisa said, trying not to sound to annoyed. Knowing who it was made her even more frustrated…Chief Wiggum was bad enough, then Ralph and now his wife.

"Oh…I'm sorry. I must have phoned you by mistake. Lets see, Miss Simpson?"

Lisa rolled her eyes. "Yes, that's me. What have you got to tell me?" she asked.

"Mr Muntz has gone in to surgery again. Doctors aren't sure if he'll pull through," the receptionist read off the message on the paper in front of her.

"Oh no!" Lisa cried out. "I'll be down there right away, thank you." Her anger became worry as she put the phone down and rushed out to go and see Nelson.

She reached the hospital and found out what was happening. Nelson had been rushed in to surgery after he had started losing more blood and had passed out. Lisa paced backwards and forwards in the waiting room, thoughts rushing through her head and tears in her eyes. She was determined to be strong for Nelson and kept her hopes up. It seemed like hours before a doctor finally came to see her and give her any news.

"Lisa?" Lisa turned around to see Todd standing there. "I have some…rather bad news."

"Tell me."

"They couldn't do anything and say he'll pass away within the hour. I'm sorry. You can go and see him if you wish."

Lisa burst in to tears and nodded, allowing Todd to lead the way. When she saw Nelson she rushed over to him. "Oh, Nelson!"

Weakly he turned to look at her and smiled. "Hey. I'm glad you're here," he admitted. Lisa hugged him, careful not to hurt him. She pulled up a chair next to his bed and took hold of his hand.

"I can't believe this is happening," she said quietly.

Nelson looked sad for a moment and lost in thought. "Me neither. I'm sorry."

"You have nothing to be sorry for," Lisa said, squeezing his hand.

"I'm sorry for leaving you alone. I'm not afraid to die you know…I'm just afraid to leave you here alone."

"Nelson…"

He gently pulled her closer to him. "I'm sorry we didn't get more time together. More than anything I'm sorry for not telling you how I feel." He kissed Lisa gently on the lips and then took hold of her other hand.

She smiled and then kissed him. "I'm sorry too." They both sat in silence for a while until finally Lisa spoke again. "I'm glad we have this time together."

"Me too." They talked for a while before Nelson slowly closed his eyes and let go of one of Lisa's hands.

"Are you ok?" she asked and he shook his head.

He smiled slightly. "Goodbye Lisa. I love you."

"I love you too," Lisa said and kissed him on the cheek. She began to cry again as Nelson slipped away from her. "Goodbye," she said, her voice nothing more than a whisper.

Lisa left the hospital soon afterwards and made her way to her lonely home and went straight to bed. She didn't go to sleep though. She kept looking at photos. One of her family and one of Milhouse. After a minute she placed them down and picked up a photo of Nelson which had always made her smile. She soon fell asleep, the photos next to her and the one of Nelson in her hands.

A few years later and, for the first time since Nelsons death, she was happy. She was seeing a man called James and they were living together, along with her cat of course.. Her job at the school was going well and she loved teaching the kids, even if they could be trouble at times. She missed her family and Nelson, but she was finally happy.

She sat in silence, lost in thoughts and James came and sat next to her, wrapping his arms around her and giving her a kiss. "You ok?" he asked.

"Yeah…you know what, I am," she said with a smile as she cuddled up against him. "I found out today...I'm pregnant." James smiled and hugged her tightly. The future was looking good.
